When French Lawyers look after the Indian Market
During his visit in India last July, Mr. Laurent FABIUS, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development of France, reiterated the strategic importance of the Indo-French relationship. He recognised that the bilateral trade remains behind its potential.
In 2013, the bilateral trade only reached 7.1 billion: the French exports amount was € 2.7 billion and French imports at € 4.4 bn. Today, more than 750 French subsidiaries are settled in India, employing about 240,000 people.
